A delightful collection of vintage and antique postcards of New York. This book presents a rare collection of more than 100 of the best vintage New York City postcards, providing a snapshot of how much the Big Apple has changed-and how much has remained recognizably the same. During the early years of the twentieth century, postcard photographers travelled the length and breadth of Manhattan snapping images and documenting landmarks and important new architectural masterpieces, such as the Singer Building (1908), the Metropolitan Life Insurance Company Tower (1909), and the Woolworth Building (1913)-each of which succeeded the other as the world's tallest building at the time of their respective completion. Also celebrated were the engineering feats of the Brooklyn Bridge and the elevated trains and early subway, as well as popular amusements such as the original Madison Square Garden and the Hippodrome, which occupied an entire city block at Longacre Square-since renamed Times Square. Scenic views of the city from a distance were equally popular-and in fact led to the coining of the word skyline in 1896. This charming keepsake volume is the perfect souvenir for architecture and history buffs and makes a wonderful gift.
